MC speaks the truth.  Just about everyone who knows anything about running a studio in Nashville is partnered in that studio.  It has all of the top instructors and coaches in that area.

I've noticed that a larger amount of dancers at my local social seem to be dancing to find a relationship rather than to actually dance. Is this the same for your studios? do most people generally come for the love of dancing or dance to find love - or even a bit of both?

To resurrect this topic... it's an interesting question.  There is a certain amount of that that goes on at our studio, and you can kind of tell who is and who isn't.  But then again, as I said before, there are people who come first with the idea of meeting potential mates, but then they fall in love with the dancing and the "partner" search takes a back seat. 

There are also people who are single and want to socialize with members of the opposite sex, but aren't necessarily looking for a relationship.  For them, dancing often fills the bill quite nicely, and they will usually continue to dance even after they have finally found a mate, if they do. 

I recall an odd case from a few years ago.  There was a lady of about 40 who started dancing after she got divorced.  She danced regularly for about a year.  Then she met a guy (a non-dancer) and she quit dancing.  Six months later, she was back; they had broken up.  She danced regularly for a few more months, then met another guy (another non-dancer) and quit again.  I haven't seen her since.  I've wondered if she was coming to the studio to meet guys, or if it was just something to occupy time in between relationships.

I think it is related to the demographics of the dance scene. If I've been reading other threads correctly, the OP is young.  If much of his dance scene is around his age, it only makes sense that there would be a lot of pairing off.  People in their teens and twenties do a lot of pairing off, wherever they are.  It's the stage of life they're in.  In all my dancing, I can count on one hand the number of people who've found a life partner at dance.   The number of people who enter the dance scene to heal after a breakup or who breakup shortly after starting dance?  Now that's the horse of a different color you keep hearing about.  Wink
